Last night was hilarious. We had a family dinner, with home made bread (made by me! Also? Undercooked! Still delicious.).
Then, the fun began.
My niece is almost three, and she is hilarious. I spent at least an hour tickle attacking her. Then I scooped her up and did a set of 20 curls, to get my exercise in. We also jumped on the bed, played chase, and laughed and laughed.
She's at the wonderful age where everything is funny and silly and wonderful.
Which led to this:
This morning I hopped out of bed, threw on house clothes, and dug 5 holes in my back yard. My mom helped plant the rest of the trees, and then I headed off to work.
Digging holes is a great workout. My shirt was drenched in sweat. It was awesome. I was definitely using all my muscles. If I were a crazy person I would get up every morning and dig holes before I went to work. But I'm pretty sure only people on drugs do that. So, yeah.
Let's hope all these trees live (we lost one of the original avocado trees I planted).
New trees to the line up:
Avocado (to replace the one that died)
I want fruit NOW. I hope they grow up big and strong.
We still have room in the yard for at least one more tree. We thought about kiwis, but they make my mouth itch. And we never like plums as much as we think we will. I wonder how hard it is to grow an almond tree.
The next yard steps will be to build garden beds and plant bulbs. I have bulbs already that I need to get in the ground this week. I should probably map out the size of garden beds I want, too, so I can make a list of lumber I need. I'm going to be rocking Square Foot Gardening because it makes so much sense. I'm excited to grow our own vegetables.
I also want to start our own compost pile. I don't know why I'm dragging my feet on that one. All I need is a bucket for the kitchen and a tarp to cover the pile. Lame.
Tonight is dinner at our house with the family. Afterward maybe I'll do an exercise video with my mom. Or play board games. The night is still young, and I'm not too concerned.
Tomorrow morning I have a gym session. Tomorrow after work I'll be walking around the Biggest Loser Ranch (it's also a state park, so they can't kick me out until dark). Exciting!
This is what happens when I leave my brother alone with my phone.
What are your workout plans for today and tomorrow?
If you could only listen to one type of radio station forever, what would it be?
Classic Rock, for sure. Growing up, that was the only radio station we got, and it shaped my musical interests for life, baby.
